Volbella, Smooth Lip Lines
Allergan® facial aesthetics recently released a new addition to their catalog of dermal fillers called, Vobella. Volbella was specifically designed to minimize and remove vertical lip lines in the upper and lower lip. These bothersome wrinkles, often referred to as “smokers lines” are one of the most common reasons people visit us for filler and laser therapy. These lip lines are universally troublesome to men and women alike as they represent a “giveaway” sign of aging.
Get Rid of “Smoker’s Lines”
At Ocean Drive Plastic Surgery we find that many of our patients want to remove the lip lines but, they don’t necessarily want to change how their lips look. Volbella, a hyaluronic acid based filler, is a soft gel-type filler that markedly reduces or removes perioral lip lines without major alteration to lip anatomy. In other words, Dr. Durkin is able to reduce lip lines without plumping up your lips, or changing your lips significantly.
Get Soft Pouty Lips
The effect of Volbella is truly unique as compared to other fillers, in that it reduces lip lines while simultaneously creating soft, natural, and pouty look to your lips without adding significant volume and risking overfilling your lips. So, its’ unique cohesive characteristics allows the filler to seamlessly integrate into the lip and perioral anatomy. Specifically, Dr. Durkin injects it into the vermillion border, where the red-colored lip meets the skin-colored lip. Volbella is designed to work at this specific location (the Vermillion and White Roll of the Lip). It serves to define the natural curves of the lip, and reduce and remove lip lines. For lip augmentation, Volbella offers a difference between good and great. By layering Volbella with Juvederm XC Ultra, the best in natural appearing, nonsurgical lip augmentation is routinely provided by Dr. Durkin at Ocean Drive Plastic Surgery.
Smoother Lips in Minutes
Volbella is FDA approved for the treatment of perioral lip lines in the United States. It is delivered via injection into the upper and lower lips. The procedure itself takes just minutes to complete and results are immediate. Injections at Ocean Drive Plastic Surgery are always done by Dr. Durkin himself. Dr. Durkin is certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery and the American Board of Surgery. Most patients require one to two tubes for optimal results.
